Calculation Frequency for Tip Pooling

Released October 5th 2022 - Web

Many restaurants pool their tips on a daily, weekly, bi-weekly, semi-monthly, or monthly basis. You'll be able to set the calculation frequency of your choice, and if needed, a different frequency for each tip pool. Save time by making fewer errors with tip pooling automation!

⚠️  By default, Admins/Managers/Assistant Managers will have access to manage or edit the Tip Pool settings. However, Admins can change this by enabling or disabling the Manager Permission 'Can create and edit tip pools.'

How to Setup Calculation Frequency

  1. In the top navigation bar, hover over 'More' and select Tip Pooling. Once on the Tip Pooling page, select Create a tip pool

  2. Fill out your tip pool details, and click on How often are tips calculated: 'Daily'  to expand the dropdown menu:

  4. Set the date for which your last pay period ended, and we'll use this date to start pooling your tips. The date will automatically default to the last date of the pay period on your Time Clocking page, but you're welcome to adjust it as needed! :

    Pro Tip!

    We recommend that you align these dates with how you view pay periods to ensure accurate reporting.
